    I've got a question about morning glory. Do you find it easier to plant with a seed or a starter plant? Any other helpful hints you might have when dealing with this plant. Thanks.

    Here morning Glory is the common name for Bindweed, and yes all you could want for free here. Just take a small vine of it and place it in dirt. I can't imagine anyone planting it on purpose.

    Ornamental varieties of morning glory will grow quickly from seed, so no point in buying plants, unless you get a late start. They can be prolific seeders, so be careful with your placement and upkeep. If you really want to make an impact. Start the seeds yourself indoors in small pots and when the weather is right in your area transplant outside with a big head start.

    Just learned that Bindweed/ morning glory is able to grow 4' deep and 5' wide, root spread in 13 weeks! Do not ever plant this it will spread everywhere and you will never get rid of it!

    you could keep it in a planter, but then you will have to worry when it drops it seeds
